In-Kind Donations:


       Every donation made to Kaaawa K9 rescue helps animals in need. Your donation will be used to provide food, shelter and medical care to all dogs that we help on a daily basis. 

       We are not-for-profit, 501(c)3 charitable organization, and receive no funding from federal, state or county governments.

      Kaaawa K9 rescue is dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and finding homes for abandoned, abused and neglected animals on the island. Thanks to your donations, we as well, provide help in food and medical care for pets in the community when their families are not able to. All the vital services we offer to the community are made possible ONLY by the thoughtful generosity of supporters such as YOU.

      Your gift truly makes a difference in the lives of our animals.


It takes a lot to provide for all the animals in shelter care, and as you can imagine, we go through supplies very quickly. You might have extra cleaning supplies, sheets, towels or blankets around the house that you don't need, and to us, they can be an amazing gift and tremendous help. 


Kaaawa K9 Rescue encourages you to do some "spring cleaning", and consider donating anything that is on our list below. We encourage you to ask your friends, neighbors, and coworkers to donate as well. This is an amazing opportunity to do a good deed and provide much-needed items for dogs in our care. 


To make a donation, please email us at INFO@KK9R.ORG to make arrangements for drop off/pick up.
